Brother DCP-130C

 

Given the number of printers and MFDs (multifunction devices) rolling off the assembly lines every year, it's easy to forget how much thought goes into designing new models. Until you see a product of the calibre of the Brother DCP-130C, that is.

Overall, HP's PhotoSmart C3180 is perhaps preferable on print quality. However, the Brother is very impressive, and if you're more interested in robust paper feeding and convenient design, this is a strong contender.

Brother - DCP-130C

 

Brother's DCP-130C is a compact multi-function device, featuring a four-colour inkjet printer, copier and scanner, and is so compact you begin to wonder how they managed to fit it all in. Also compact is the price ...

The compact size and low price of the DCP-130C make it an ideal MFD where home or office space is at premium and you don't need the higher duty cycles of a larger unit.

Brother DCP-130C

 

This is a compact All In One unit, however while it is small and the controls are easy to use, all is not as it should be.

The is 39x35x16cm and light grey and black in colour. There are a total of 15 buttons all at the right side of the front edge of the top along with a rather poor LED display that you always seem to be at the wrong angle to view what it is saying. The...

Ink Usage

 

Never buying Brother products again. They ruined my first impression.

Compact ; Support response was good however

Uses more ink auto-cleaning than ever. It cleans all the time and I barely use it. I have had printers last over a year on one set of ink cartridges and this DCP-130c used four sets in 8 months!!!?!??!?!? I only print about 4-10 pages a month in gray...

WARNING - if you dont print alot stay away

 

This is why even low usage of the color cartridges causes a loss of ink. Lack of use leads to ink drying in the jets and ultimately, poor print quality. In order to keepthe print quality at its best, the machine will continue to clean the nozzles as...

Great small all in one!!! Amazing price and not too cheap. The quality not bad, however ; 1. This printer loves to jam even with quality paper ; 2. If you DO NOT use it a lot it will waste an unbelievable amount of ink. I only printed 52 pieces of gray...

This is what they wrote me about the excessive ink usage: Dear Brother customer: (intro removed) The amount of ink your machine uses can vary depending on different factors. The first factor is what you print. Brother ink cartridges arerated at 5% page...

OK I guess

 

I was unlucky. No way for me to tell how often this happens.

Compact size, fast, print quality is very good, I like the controls, ink not too expensive

It died just before I needed it for a time-sensitive project. I couldn't wait for the RMA turnaround so I had to buy another printer

brother DCP series DCP-130C Up to 25 ppm 6000 x 1200 dpi InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer - Retail

 

Be sure to check the website and update the firmware if needed.

I've owned this printer for about a year and a half and have had no issues with it. Reasonable price, excellent use of ink, quiet, good resolution across all boards, print quality, and ease of use. I was actually quite surprised with this

Not exactly the fastest printer in the world but for the average person it is more than adequate. Doesn't seem to handle photo paper all that well as it clumps a few sheets together but the pro's far outweigh the con's

oh brother. a follow -up.

 

This is a follow up of owning the product about 6 months *

6 months of solid, a-few-jobs-a-day printing, and it says it's only half way out of ink. I can't believe it. I don't know how it's still not out of ink

Most of the printer is decently high quality, especially compared to the 25$ Lex's you'll find at Wally-World
